Dangers of Spring

Protect your canine companions from the dangers that accompany the wonders of Spring. Heartworm, tick-borne diseases (including Lyme disease) and leptospirosis are common types of infections that carry significant risks for your four-legged family members. In recent years we have seen an increase in the incidence of many of these diseases and our relatively mild Winter didn’t reduce our risk of additional exposures this year.

Vaccinations for Lyme and leptospirosis reduce your pet’s risk of acquiring these diseases. Leptospirosis vaccines will also reduce spread of this zoonotic disease from pets to people. Additionally, tick preventative and heartworm medications can stop infections before they even get a chance to start.

Please visit the vaccine section of our website for more detailed information about these serious springtime diseases or feel free to consult with one of our Doctors or knowledgeable staff members.
